Effective Hibernate with Spring

Learn how to master JPA and Hibernate, starting from optimized data reads to conquering effective data writes.

There are several courses out there targeting basic Hibernate use-cases. This course is different. The goal is to bridge the gap of the basics and the complicated features of the framework.

What you’ll learn

  • You will be able to solve complex database problems using Hibernate and Spring.
  • You will understand how lazy-loading works internally in Hibernate.
  • You will be able to decide when and how to use DTO projections.
  • You will be able to use covering indices with Hibernate.
  • You will be able to fine-tune your flushing strategy.
  • You will be able to customize your concurrency controls to maximize throughput while ensuring correctness.
  • You will be able to boost write performance to the maximum with advanced statement batching.

Effective Hibernate with Spring

Requirements

  • Java knowledge.
  • Basic JPA knowledge with the understanding of entities and relations.
  • Spring knowledge.

There are several courses out there targeting basic Hibernate use-cases. This course is different. The goal is to bridge the gap of the basics and the complicated features of the framework.

During the recent years, the IT industry has moved so fast that it’s really hard to keep track of it, and I with all the more and more complicated products to be developed, it’s critical to understand more advanced features of Hibernate and JPA to be able to support these asks from a development standpoint.

Spring is one of the most frequent framework that is used within the IT industry. I amm going to take this learning experience even further by connecting the dots between Hibernate and Spring, focusing on specific and complex use-cases.

In the course the following topics will be covered:

  • Entity-state transition pitfalls with merging
  • The performance aspect of lazy loading data
  • DTO projections and the positive performance impact
  • Using covering indices with Hibernate
  • Flushing fine-tuning
  • Concurrency-control in depth
  • Statement batching in detail with optimizations

This is a course tailored specifically for you in order to improve your skills and move your career forward as a professional engineer.

Note that the course does not cover the basics of JPA and Hibernate but assumes that the foundation is already there.

The training also includes a number of practices after almost each section which you can use to polish your skills, and to make sure you understood the specific block.
